Breastfeeding Benefits
...

There are many benefits to breastfeeding. Even if you are able to do it for only a short time, your baby's immune system can benefit from breast milk. Here are several common breastfeeding questions along with answers!

Benefits of Breastfeeding For Mom:

  1. Nursing uses up extra calories, making it easier to lose the pounds of pregnancy.
  2. Breastfeeding lowers the risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
  3. Breastfeeding can help a mother to bond with her baby. Physical contact is important to newborns and can help babies feel more secure.
  4. Breast milk is always available and ready! No more bottles to clean and no more formula to mix! Breast milk is always ready and does not require mom to mix anything or heat any milk!

    Benefits Of Breastfeeding For Baby:

  5. Breast milk is the most complete form of nutrition for infants. A mother's milk has just the right amount of fat, sugar, water, and protein that is needed for a baby's growth and development. Most babies find it easier to digest breast milk than they do formula.

  6. Breastfed babies score slightly higher on IQ tests.

  7. Breastfed infants grow exactly the way they should. They tend to gain less unnecessary weight and to be leaner
